I beg to differ.


It is this that has nothing to do with the dharma.

Is Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s Tibetan Buddhism Chinese in all but name?

blog.hiddenharmonies.org

<b>That being said China remains the very same dictatorship which the 16th Karmapa fled in 1959.

Nothing has changed for us.

If Tibetans such as Ogyen Trinley Dorje see himself as a Chinese vassel then so be it.

Good luck with that.

For my part I want nothing to do with being a Chinese vassel.

A Tibetan Buddhism that normalizes China’s occupation of Tibet is unacceptable to me as such.

Did Nalandabodhi teacher Dilyak Drupon Rinpoche use his Bhutanese nationality to evade India’s Financial Intelligence Unit?

So much for the notion that Tibetans lack the skill set necessary for such financial malfeasance.

The “Bhutanese named in Panama Papers” Ponlop Rinpoche’s brother, Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s Labrang

An example of the New Translation of Tibetan Buddhism in the West.

Remember.

Ogyen Trinley Dorje is Chinese in all but name.

That we ever thought otherwise was wishful thinking on our part.

E. Gene Smith giant of the Early Translation era of Tibetan Buddhism in the West

tibeto-logic.blogspot.com

As head of the New Delhi office of the Library of Congress E. Gene Smith brought the Early Translation era of Tibetan Buddhism in the West out of the dark ages and into the Twentieth Century for us.

He took us from relying upon the anecdotes of European adventurers to working with texts Tibetans had for generations worshiped as sacred without the skill set necessary to read and comprehend such manuscripts.

“The reality today is that, even though these kids may be genuine tulkus, many of them have not even learned to wipe their own noses”

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

I think that the promised result of succession by reicarnation in the Early Translation era of Tibetan Buddhism in the West made by Tibetans, that we could trust them to bring forth a next generation of Tulku’s to follow in their predecessor’s footsteps has been proven to have been wishful thinking on our part.

Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche the 4th

Since ‘disrobing’ one year ago Jamgon Kongtrul has disappeared off the face of the earth.

The last we heard from him was on Facebook last year to complain about the cover up of his decision.

For all we know he could be dead.

As far as his Labrang Tenzin Dorje is concerned it is as if nothing happened.

Ogyen Trinley Dorje has spoken of his disappointment without accepting any responsibility in the matter.

Remember.

Never forget what happened at Pullhari monastery.

Tibetans failed us.

What has become of Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche the 4th?

The buck stops with Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

I call on U.K. Buddhists to not allow him to leave London next month without answering this question.

“Long ago we identified the importance of translating the Vidyadhara’s teachings in English into Tibetan”

“Karma Senge Rinpoche and the twelfth Trungpa Tulku Chökyi Senge have requested that the elventh Trungpa Rinpoche’s English teachings be translated into Tibetan.”
